Traditionally superheroes used to be with american colors (superman, wonder woman, spiderman, etc), even if were aliens. from ancient civilizations or mutant freaks, or plain american by name (i.e. Captain America).

Putting supervillains in american colors could be more akin with this times, where America is start to be seen, even by its own people, not as something that fight for freedom, justice, or truth, but for oil, economic advantage, plain revenge or whatever, and not caring about how many innocent people die in the process.
